taxi Van 9pax, PGS Cambodia, Sep 19, 2020
You will get all 5 stars if the Vehicle is the same as the picture that you're advertised. Because from your picture I expect to get a luxury Van same as picture (Minibus Ford Transit) Although the car supplied is very different from the reserved picture Just good engine condition The air conditioner is very cold and Polite driver. Next long holiday, I've plan to go to Siem Reap again but I'll try to find transporter who can provide Ford Transit with reasonable price.
